California Pizza Kitchen's Broccoli, Sun-Dried Tomato Fusilli
Ingredients:
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 pound dry fusilli pasta
= (or 2 lbs fresh fusilli)
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup chopped fresh garlic
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
12 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes -- drained, and
sliced into thin strips
1 quart bite-size broccoli florets -- blanched, drained
1 1/4 cups grated parmesan cheese -- 1/4 cup reserved
for garnish

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta until al dente, 8
to 10 minutes for dry or 3 minutes for fresh. Pasta may be cooked
slightly ahead of time, rinsed and oiled and then "flashed" (reheated) in
boiling water to coincide with the finishing of the sauce/topping.

Heat olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add salt
and garlic; when the garlic just begins to brown, add thyme and sun-dried
tomatoes. Toss and add broccoli. When broccoli is heated through, add
drained pasta (if pan is not large enough to accommodate this large load,
proceed quickly in a large mixing bowl, while ingredients are still quite
hot). Add 1 cup parmesan to the pan, sprinkling and tossing/stirring to
mix.

Remove from heat; serve the pasta in warm bowls with a fresh dusting of
parmesan cheese.

This recipe yields ?? servings.

Comments: Fresh diced tomatoes can be added along with the broccoli if so
desired.
